ANDREA J. WILL LIFECHATS SERIES IN FINANCE & ACCOUNTING
The Andrea J. Will LifeChats Series in Finance & Accounting is sponsored by the Andrea J. Will Memorial Foundation.
Andrea Judith Will, a young wife and mother, was diagnosed in October 2008 with late-stage, metastasized pancreatic cancer. After a courageous and dignified battle with the disease, Andrea passed away in June 2009 at the age of 43. Andrea left behind her husband Richard Rosenzweig, her young son Tyler, family members, friends, and business associates from her career as a Partner at Eisner LLP Accountants. To honor her life and those who cared for her at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Richard and a small group of friends created the Foundation.
